Ok, so I"m just getting started on my smokehouse build, but I want to integrate a PID controller, or at least the box for future installation, into my design.
I don't want to have an ugly metal box hanging off the side of my smoker, so I want to make the room for it now, while I'm building. And for the wiring required for the sensor. Like I said before, I might even use the PID to run some fans/vents while under charcoal heat.
I have seen a ton of threads on PID wiring, but seen very few actually installed on the smokers.
Is it better to be below the heat chamber? (I will have about 20" legs below, to allow for my door design.) Or should I just plan on building a box onto the side of the smoker to house all of it?
Could some of you members that have PID's installed in Wood Smokers share a few pics of how you have yours installed?
